Four days ago Syamala Devi Mani,a final year medical student in Lasi, Romania called our Ganeson Gunalan to thank us for highlighting her financial predicament in even borrowing from loan sharks in completing her sixth and final year medical studies. And even after her studies her medical degree is refused to be recognized by the racist UMNO 1 Malay-sia regime when the British General Medical Council (BGMC) and the European Union recognizes her Medical degree. This also the case with the medical degrees in Russia, India, Indonesia, Ukraine, Romania, Checkoslvakia etc.
Why? Why this level of UMNO racism in 1 Malay-sia and never seen or heard any other part of the world? Which religion teaches this?
Having been segregated and denied places in the local Universities and overseas JPA scholarships to do medicine over the last 54 year, Indian poor parents utilize their lifelong savings, pension funds, EPF, sell their land, houses, beg, borrow and send their children to study medicine in Russia, India, Indonesia, Ukraine, Romania, Checkoslavakia, as the tution fees in these countries are lower. These Indian parents soil, toil and cut corners and suffer working hard and long hours so that their children will not lead the miserable lives they lead and will have a better live.
But look at how the racist, facist and supremacist UMNO regime throws sand into the ricebowl of these Malaysian ethnic Indian medical students simply because they are the Indian poor and the UMNO agenda is reduce the total number of ethnic Indian medical students from 60% in 1957 to an estimated 5% today and targeted to be reduced to 1% by the 2020 Wawasan UMNO.
See how UMNO hampers the upward mobility opportunities of these Indian poor and does so with racist impunity.
Going backwards 40 years ago even the highly regarded Judges of the apex Federal Court Tun Suffian Raja Azlan Shah, Salleh Abbas, rejected the setting up of the MCA and Chinese philanthropist first private University. See how UMNO has been using the Courts to stifle upward mobility opportunities.
But in the last 40 years the rich and powerful Chinese community who control some 60% of the Malaysian economy have their private Inti, Rima, Curtin, TAR, KDU, Taylors College, Sunway, etc and/or have the money to send their children for studies overseas.
But for the academically weak Indian poor youths, the UMNO regime even refuses to taken them into the 213 Giatmara Skills Training Colleges nationwide, hundreds of Vocational Colleges, Technical Colleges and Community Colleges which are almost 100% exclusively for only the Malay muslims but what is otherwise touted as 1 Malay-sia by UMNO Prime Minister Najib Razak.
And the pin drop silence by the pseudo multi-racial Opposition Leaders, NGO’s civil society etc.
